More chocolate :) It’s surprising how many varieties of chocolate tea there are on the market and Della Terra seem to have a decent selection. I have around 5/6 other chocolate tea’s that I have yet to try from them but so far so good. Other chocolate tea’s I have tried seem to be as far from chocolate as possible and it just tastes chemically fake and strange.

Raw this tea smells like chocolate with dark cherries, almost like black forest gateux.

Once brewed the chocolate is darker and the cherry is sweeter. A good start so far.

The flavour is nice, chocolatey and sweet but with only a hint of cherry. The smell is darker than the taste, whilst it does taste of dark chocolate rather than milk it’s still rather light and fresh. It’s similar to a hot chocolate/hot cocoa drink but without the milk/creamer and a drop of cherry liqueur/syrup in for flavour.

I was hoping that this would be a little stronger with the cherry but it’s still very nice. I would say it tastes more like chocolate cake with a cherry on top than fresh cherries dipped in chocolate.

I do have a tea to compare this with and that would be Black Forest – Simpli-special. That tea contained stronger tasting cherries and it was also a little sweeter. In comparison this Griottes blend tastes like a weakened version.

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
